Thanks for the kind words. Nowadays my poster only hangs in my home, I no longer use it when giving shows.

I have dealt with Disney's archive which bought some of my collections before obtaining their own film print materials of certain titles I have. Perhaps this has delayed their otherwise litigious nature.

And I would say about "decency" that I had no idea what I considered an innocent question about PD and cartoonsonline would explode into these magnificent proportions, involving death threats, insults and accusations. I can appreciate what Mr. Stathe is doing. I just didn't like his legal wording. So I apologize for not just contacting cartoonsonline directly. I thank Video Cellar for his balanced words. Clearly there is some kind of giant PD DVD distribution business I was completely unaware of, and could have died for the cause.

Very strange group of people indeed.

Strange? Yes, in some ways. Though, the word strange only signifies unfamiliarity. Again, we both could have avoided headaches if you would have contacted me directly, as many have in the past for similar uses. Museums show my films and they have appeared for free at charitable events. My website has been revised now thanks to Video-Cellar's suggestions. What I will say though, is it's best to learn about a specific field by talking to the people operating in it rather than skirting the circles to start a conversation outside of the loop. This only invites assumption and uninformed voices.
